We planned to do our Open Water Diver on Boracay and were looking for a dive shop. After TripAdvisor/Google ratings we had two possible shops left and with Lapu Lapu we found the one. Checking the vacancies, we met Darwin, who warmly welcomed us. We have done the OWC in 3 days and did the Advanced right away because it was so much fun. Thank you very much for the stoking experience. The place turns into a bar at night, so it will become your second home. We will come back for the next Level;)

I went with my 12Y-O Kid for a Diving Baptismal this January. IT is one of the Best experiències i had in my life and the crew is so friendly. The Best thing about this place is that for a really afordable price, you get an instructor for just you. Nothing about huge grups Diving at the same time with just 1 instructor... Only Me & my son It was an enormous pleasure to be teached by Louie, such a profesional and funny guy that knows about Diving and he explained the things in an easy way for the Kid. Few minutes of pràctice in the beach and then got the boat to the reef for a 40min diving time that left us wanting yo repeat. If you go to borácay and you are looking for a diving club have no doubt on choosing Lapu-Lapu PADI diving, and ask for Louie as your instructor. Louie opened us a whole New underwater World and i have no doubt we will repeat with him as soon as we go to Boracay. LOUIE I owe you a Beer and a TIP (i was só excited after diving i forgot to give it to you!) The Spanish guy

We dove for a week at Boracay with Lapu Lapu and we can very much recommend the dive center. The crew was great and it felt like diving with friends vs just being a customer. The dive sites range from fun / easy to sites that can be a bit more sporty due to depth and current. We did most of our dives with Brian and can only recommend him. He picked sites well suited to the skill level and interest of the group (corals, airplane/ship wreck, drift). My wife took a Nitrox class - many thanks to Dan who made it a fun experience for her. Boat rides are typically around 10 minutes so you can come back between dives. If you are there and like to dive or learn to dive - this is a good place for it. Having a bar with life music for after diving helps of course :) For reference, I am a DM and dive for 30+ years.

We had a great dive at yapak 2 with Brian and Darwin. They made sure that we reached the wall in time and even took photos of us. Couldn’t have asked for any better!

After getting our OWD certs at Panglao, we visited Boracay and made three dives with Lapu Lapu diving center. We were visiting a local diving equipment store and asked for recommendations on diving centers. They highly praised Lapu Lapu and after seeing that also here, you, fellow tripadvisors were giving positive feedback, we had no doubts when we booked the dives with Lapu Lapu. The diving center personnel are highly professional and the whole shop is a nice place to hang out with it's relaxed atmosphere (and when the evening falls , the shop transforms to a quite nice bar also, with the scuba gear hanging on the walls acting as a nice decoration). We had Bri as our guide underwater. Bri gave us a very good and clear briefings before each dive with detailed instructions on how things would proceed from start to end. Felt really safe through the whole dives having this professionalism with us. The shop provides training in multiple languages so if you want to do your dives e.g. по русски, here you can do it. So If you're ever visiting Boracay we recommend you to visit Lapu Lapu diving center for some professionally guided safe and fun diving.
